Easy you say?

Now come on you know I'm never easy :wink:
"Thou didst die
A half-blown flow'ret which cold blasts amate.
But this is past: thou art among the stars
Of highest Heaven: to the rolling spheres
Thou sweetly singest: naught thy hymning mars,
Above the ingrate world and human fears."

Whatever happened with this game?

Did everyone get bored of it?

I can't remember why it was abandoned. Were the quotes becoming too obscure?

Answer:

Sonnet to Chatterton.


I want to play.


"And never was a day of summer shine,
But I beheld its birth upon the brine:
For I would watch all night to see unfold
Heaven’s gates, and Aethon snort his morning gold
Wide o’er the swelling streams: and constantly
At brim of day-tide, on some grassy lea,
My nets would be spread out, and I at rest.
The poor folk of the sea-country I blest
With daily boon of fish most delicate:
They knew not whence this bounty, and elate
Would strew sweet flowers on a sterile beach."

I love this one:


Think of my Pleasure in Solitude, in comparison of my commerce with the world - there I am a child - there they do not know me not even my most intimate acquaintance - I give into their feelings as though I were refraining from irritating a little child - Some think me middling, others silly, other foolish - every one thinks he sees my weak side against my will; when in thruth it is with my will - I am content to be thought all this because I have in my own breast so great a resource. This is one great reason why they like me so; because they can all show to advantage in a room, and eclipse from a certain tact one who is reckoned to be a good Poet - I hope I am not here playing tricks 'to make the angels weep': I think not: for I have not the least contempt for my species; and though it may sound paradoxical: my greatest elevations of Soul leave me every time more humbled - Enough of this - though in your Love for me you will not think it enough.

This is from one of his letters.... (that's brilliant BrokenLyre!)

I have read it before. Is it from his letter to George Keats? I can't recall right now... but seems like something he'd write to George or possibly Fanny Brawne.... 1818?

Nice quote Raphael

I wanna play!!
I haven't answered a quote correctly yet (probably because all the previous ones have been answered!! and the game hasn't been played in a while! and I don't even began to know [by heart] everything Keats has penned!), but I have one. I'm quoting from memory because I don't have my copy of Keats's poems with me here at school, so it most likely won't be verbatim and the verse breaks may be incorrect, but here it goes:

"We are such forest trees
And our fair branches have brought forth
Not pale solitary doves, but eagles, golden-feathered
Who do tower above us in their beauty
And who reign in right thereof;
For 'tis eternal law, that first in beauty should be first in might."

Hyperion comes to mind. But I'm not sure.
